Geo-engineering - the frustrated climate scientist's last-ditch solution to global warming - is not likely to be a very popular choice.

True.. but despite national policies and international efforts aimed at mitigating climate change, emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases that are warming the planet grew 2.2 percent per year on average between 2000 and 2010, compared to 1.3 percent per year from 1970 to 2000.

What do you say, kids?

Talking about CO2 growing shows the ignorance and arrogance of thewarmist fear mongers. CO2 percentage of the atmosphere is measured in PARTS PER MILLION and the other so-called greenhouse gases in PARTS PER BILLION. The ONLY result of the small increase in CO2 has been increased crop yields, which can be correlated exactly with the miniscule increase. In the Earth's historical record, increased CO2 has always resulted in increased vegetation and never can be associated with global warming (see the ice cores, etc.)

Since almost 99% of the atmosphere has no GHG effects, we are talking parts per 10,000, which are easily understood to have effects. Then, consider the many other GHGs plus their primary & secondary feedbacks, a whole science of possibilities opens up. Also, consider that phase change, infra-red energy absorbing water vapor quantities are controlled by increasing amounts of man-made, non-phase change, infra-red energy absorbing GHGs, plus their primary & secondary feedbacks, then you have a lot of cooks in the kitchen, stirring the AGW hot pot.

Climatologists can't tell you what the weather will be like tomorrow. The warmists have repeatedly been proven to be data manipulators, leaving out data to validate their false models. They have repeatedly been shown to be conspirators with political agendas. NONE of their models have predicted what has happened over the last seventeen years. ALL observable reality and ALL honest data has gone against them, including the reality opposed to their ridiculous claims of a majority of scientists agreeing with them, or their false models. NONE of their models over the last four decades have been correct. Their models in the 1970s claimed that our coastal cities would be under water. Such is not even close to being real. Islands in the Pacific a few feet above sea level have experienced no increased threat. AGW fear mongers have to resort to the most extreme propaganda to maintain their Federal funding and that is all this is about...

blah blah blah you are wrong, container trout.

There are great weather predictions outside the USA. You really have no idea about science except holding a seethng grudge from your own history.

Poor poor trout!

Stop pretending to be something you're not and having accomplishments you don't. It's unseemly.

Ah........"cold dead fish" thinks a hi skule DEE-plooomaa is an accomplishment. What? That "cold dead fish" didn't get? That makes the 8th touched toxic topix AGW denier who doesn't have a hi skule DEE-plooomaa.

It's unseemly, but true that touched toxic topix AGW deniers can't......... get science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc in their poorly (or non-) earned hi skule DEE-plooomaas.

Yet the basic cause, overpopulation, is such a political hot potato that it just cannot be mentioned.
